The planet Pluto was discovered by accident in 1930 by Clyde William Tombaugh.

Pluto is the the furthest planet from the Sun - except for 20 years during its 248 year orbit, when it comes closer to the Sun than Neptune. It is so far away that, from its surface, the Sun merely looks like a bright star in the sky.

It is 5,915 million km away from the Sun, almost 40 times further away than the Earth

It's often said that the Great Wall of China is the only artificial object visible from space. But this is not the case.

In low Earth orbits, many other constructions can be spotted, including the Egyptian pyramids and some modern buildings too. In higher orbits even the Great Wall is impossible to spot

Hey! I read that on a toilet wall it's gotta be true. P.S. don't ask me what I was doing reading scrawl above a mens urinal.

Waiting patiently for the man stood right next to you to leave, so you could 'go'?
